Catholic Education Sunday:
Sunday, November 4, 2018 is Catholic Education Sunday in Alberta. This year’s theme asks us to ponder “Rejoice and be glad,” in a Catholic school environment. The Catholic Bishops of Alberta have written a formal letter regarding this celebration that can be downloaded by: Click here
We, at Elk Island Catholic Schools, in addition to our district motto to See Christ in Everyone, also have a theme this year and it is: “We are all God's masterpiece." It is based upon Ephisians 2:10 from sacred Scripture. As well, there is a divisional goal/ service project to support the women and children of Valeda house in Edmonton with prayers, basic necessities, and financial support. The goal is to demonstrate that our faith must be lived and the Christian life is rooted in love of God and love of neighbour.

Pray for Protection of Human Life
Lord, and Maker of all that is good,
Fill our hearts with joy before the wonders of your creation.
Open our eyes to the presence of your beloved Son Jesus in all those we encounter
and especially in the weakest and most vulnerable among us.
When we see life threatened at its beginning or at its end,
Or by poverty and deprivation,
Inspire us with love and mercy
So that, empowered by your Holy Spirit,
We may work together to defend human dignity.
Help us to build a culture of life:
A culture in which each and every person is loved and valued as your child
from conception to natural death,
And in every circumstance of life.
Mary, Mother of the living, Pray for us.
Pope Francis on the Eucharist:
"Let us pray that participation in the Eucharist provoke us always to follow the Lord every day, to be instruments of communion, to share with Him and with our neighbour who we are. Then our lives will be truly fruitful. Amen."
(May 29, 2013)
"We the members of these parish communities are called by our Baptism to discipleship in Jesus Christ to worship as a Catholic Christian community, to minister to one another, to educate in the light of the Gospel, and to evangelize by spreading the Good News. This is our challenge as we journey. Our role is to serve others in Jesus' name by following His example and to reach out to those in our community who need us."
